With commuters returning to the workplace hitting a post-pandemic high, expectations of a cleaner, safer, and more hygienic working environment mean the responsibilities of cleaning and hygiene professionals and facilities managers across the country have intensified.

Greener cleaning solutions

Finally, Soap2o will bring its latest, most innovative product range of dispensers, Eco Hand Soaps and biodegradable soap sachets, which reduce waste and embrace sustainability, all without increasing costs.
The latest in cleaning technology
Whilst sustainability is a clear priority for business owners across the industry, emerging developments in cleaning equipment technology are accelerating the work done by cleaning professionals in a timely manner, driving efficiency especially in hospitals or football stadiums where the scale of operation is much larger.

For example, 2San Global Limited will showcase its development Clean Zero, the world’s first 100% environmentally friendly cleaning solution which provides cleaning and disinfection to a hospital grade standard. It is proven to quickly eradicate 99% of bacteria and viruses in just two sprays, providing an effective real-world infection prevention solution. Meanwhile, Kimberly-Clark Professional is due to highlight its washroom and hygiene, PPE and wiping and cleaning solutions.
Commenting on this year’s line-up, Jim Melvin, Chairman, British Cleaning Council, said: “The cleaning, hygiene and waste sector is one of the ten biggest industries in the UK, and it is important that this resonates at The Cleaning Show which brings the industry together to celebrate its crucial work.
“The Covid-19 pandemic changed so many perspectives on cleaning, PPE and importantly the roles of cleaning and hygiene operatives, so I am certain that the line-up of exhibitors will be a hit with attendees as more businesses look to improve the safety of staff in the workplace. And, as we enter the winter months where viruses have an environment to thrive, it is even more important to keep our key workers and the public safe, healthy and well.”
Paul Sweeney, Event Director, The Cleaning Show, added: “It was clear to see that the last show’s visitors were eager to see more solutions within the many avenues available for the cleaning industry. We want people to recognise that the cleaning industry is an exciting one to work for with a huge scope for progression, and our exhibitors help us to demonstrate that with their forward-thinking solutions provide attendees with the answers they need to respond to today’s challenges. We’re very excited to return to London in March to reflect on the evolution of the industry and unite once again to network, inspire, and educate our visitors on the latest advancements.”
